The War Between Two Men

Early on the morning of July 11th, 1804, two men met on the dueling grounds of Weehawken, Jew Jersey. When the duel was onver, one man was dead, the other a fugitive. 


Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr led curiously parallel lives. Both were orphaned at an early age. Both were brilliant students who studied law in college. Both were young staff officers under General George Washington, and both became war heroes. And each served in the newly formed government of the new nation. Why, then, did these two face each other at dawn in a duel that ended with death for one and shame for the other?
